Thank You For Participating in the 'I Swim Because' Contest!

June 08, 2017

Learning to swim is a defining experience in a child's life, an experience that creates lasting memories similar to learning to ride a bike.  But unlike riding a bike, swimming is important to your child's safety and development.  At SafeSplash, we understand...swimming is a life skill®. We also understand that swimming develops into a true passion for many; This is why we wanted to know what inspires you to swim!

It's Thanksgiving Day.  As I wait for the festivities to start, I find myself thinking about what the swim school industry has to be thankful for this year.  It definitely has been a year of great change and progress for swim schools.  Here's my top 5 list of what swim schools have to be thankful for:
